Consumers will be able to purchase a range of new wearable payment devices from Barclaycard, from next month.

Having launched its bPay band last year, the financial services company is rolling out new contactless technology-enabled wristbands, fobs and stickers that can be used to make purchases across the UK.

Open to anyone with a UK-registered Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card, the new devices can be connected to a mobile app, providing users with an opportunity to monitor and top-up their accounts online. The devices will be available to buy on the high street from August, with outdoor equipment retailer Snow & Rock announced as Barclaycard's first retail partner.

Those who use the devices will be able to pay for transactions up to the value of £20, rising to £30 when the contactless payment limit is increased in September. The bPay wristband has been designed to be close to hand for convenience, while the fob can be attached to a keyring or bag and the sticker can effectively turn any personal item into a contactless way to pay.

Barclaycard first unveiled its bPay band in June 2014 at the Pride in London festival and Barclaycard presents British Summer Time in Hyde Park. Registrations for the band reportedly spiked following Transport for London going contactless the following September.

Ahead of the new devices' high street roll-out, they will be available for purchase exclusively from Barclaycard at from 1 July. Prices are £14.99 for the sticker, £19.99 for the fob and £24.99 for the band, and the bPay products will be issued exclusively on the Visa network.

Mike Saunders, managing director for digital consumer payments at Barclaycard, commented: "We're in the midst of a sweeping change in the way we pay, with cash-dominated transactions being replaced by 'touch and go' contactless technology that has made it easier, safer and faster to make low-value payments.

"The launch of our bPay band last year was an evolutionary step for the business, with highly positive customer feedback. People told us they are looking for new ways to pay that offer greater flexibility and choice, and fit better with different lifestyles."

Trudy Hills, commercial director at the Snow & Rock Group, said the technology suits the needs of her company's main customer demographic.

She added: "The bPay range allows us to offer our on-the-go sports enthusiasts an easy way to pay – whether they're running, climbing, cycling or just going about their busy lives."
